The Main Dish
“I would be an Oscar Meyer weiner.
You know why.”
Amalia is busy doing her magic and hasn’t contemplated which food she is yet…
“A Chocolate Chip Cookie – it’s a classic and always brings a smile to people’s faces.”

Cheese! It pairs well with others, and is savory, sweet, nutty & ages well.

A dumpling or sushi. Small but powerful, packs a punch with just one bite.
